NEXT ASB MEETING:  Monday, 3/26/18. 12:20-12:40pm. Bring red folder.

Brown Bear Car Wash Tickets

We still have over 100 tickets to sell. This is being done through the Tuesday Blue Folder. If you would like to purchase tickets, they are in the office. The sales have been very slow.  Thank you to those of you who made an effort to sell. The cost for each child to go to Warm Beach in May will be $50. Please send your check in, payable to St. Pius X School by March 29th.  We will provide scholarships to families who qualify, as we want everybody to attend this retreat. Please direct these inquiries to Mr. Parker.  Whatever money that is made from current ticket sales will go toward offsetting the cost of those requiring scholarships.  If you would like to chaperone, let me know! We still need 1 more male, and 2 females. We will take this time to make sure your Virtus training is up to date. There is no cost for chaperones.   

Private High School Applications 

Congratulations to all 8th graders and their admittances to high school. Please let a school know if you will be declining an offer.  If you applied for Financial Assistance, remember to scan and upload a copy of your 2017 Tax Return to compete your application. 

If your 8th grader received any scholarship offers, please send a copy of the scholarship letter to Mrs. Van Hollebeke so we can recognize your child's achievements in the Graduation ceremony.  Please send the scholarship award information, regardless of your student's decision to attend that school or not. 

Field Trip to Sacred Heart Radio

Thank you to Garth Ovenell, Pam Owens, Henry Jocson and Monica Keen for driving on our field trip to Sacred Heart Radio!  Students recorded, "Were You There" with Mr. Anderson on Thursday, 2/22. If you would like to hear the 8th Grade sing, "Were You There" that was recorded for the radio, you can find it online here:!AnrAueaVVQ6Yg5hnNrgikn-VH1oklQ  Students were also given Radio Spots to record for future broadcasting.  It was fun to visit the station and see some of how a radio station works!  Make sure to listen to Sacred Heart Radio, AM1050 so that you can hear our St. Pius X students singing or advertising for the radio station! 

Class Graduation Pictures

Class graduation Pictures have been rescheduled to Thursday, 3/22 at 9am.  Thank you for being flexible!  Hopefully, our class will all be healthy and present for this beautiful picture. Make arrangements for haircuts so that your child is ready for this day!  Students need to be dressed up! Boys look best in a long, button-down shirt and tie, nice pants and dress shoes.  Girls look best in a skirt or dress with dress up shoes.
